Energy is one of the building blocks of modern society. The growth of the modern society has been fueled by cheap, abundant energy resources. Solar energy is a form of renewable energy which is available abundantly and collected unreservedly. In Oil Industry there is an energy problem due to energy losses of fuel consumption, refinery losses and electricity consumption in a way that reduces the net profit of the industry. This thesis presents a solar energy heating system that can be used in the next research for heating applications in oil industry. Firstly choosing the most appropriate solar system that can be used in such applications was done. Four different Mathematical Models for prediction of optical efficiency and thermal losses for the chosen system have been analyzed and then computerized using Software program for comparison based on numerical data and also practical comparison using real input data from experimental and actual solar plants.
